Subsurface Irrigation is suitable for dry and windy areas as it limits the loss of water through evaporation. Subsurface irrigation can be set up to water any crop on any farmable slope. They are used mostly on high value crops, especially vegetables and strawberries. Fuji Electric VFDs and Instrumentation & Control products are suitable for this application as they save water and minimize water loss through evaporation and allow crops to grow uniformly and improves yield. Scroll down to view which AC Drives and Instrumentation & Control products are right for you.
Fuji Electric subsurface irrigation drives can operate from single phase to 3 phase up to 460VAC and can operate at an optimal speed throughout the application. This in turn can reduce overall power and energy consumption in order to minimize operating costs. Fuji Electric is one of the few major manufacturers utilizing our own power components internally, providing consistency and compatibility for future upgrades and reliability, with an industry-leading 3-year warranty.
Subsurface VFD Features & Benefits:
- Fuji Electric Subsurface VFDs vary the pump speed to provide constant discharge pressure to ensure all crops are equally and consistently watered throughout operation times.
- Our Subsurface Variable Frequency Drives also cut operating costs by consuming less energy and offering precise pressure control for all crops.
- Eliminates water hammer in the mainline and less wear and tear on the motor and pump bearings; also comes with the remote start so subsurface pumps can be started or stopped anywhere.
- Valves can be turned on or off in the field and the VFD-controlled pump will respond automatically, saving trips to the pump
